Hi eds, just a quick question, I don't usually listen to gossip or rumours, anymore, but heard a report on merseyside radio that real had made contact with Liverpool over Salah, more rubbish or anything in it, cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained this over and over - Salah had his representatives contact RM.}

1.) 20 Mar 2018 22:04:00
I think Ed2 mentioned this months ago lol or it certainly seems that long ago, old news.

2.) 20 Mar 2018 22:47:53
I understand that ed, I guess I was asking is reals interest that strong that they've contacted Liverpool over a possible move, cheers for the reply,

{Ed002's Note - over and over again. Read the posts.}

3.) 20 Mar 2018 21:54:44
Do you expect him to leave in the Summer ed?

{Ed002's Note - no}

4.) 21 Mar 2018 07:36:38
Ive been reading this page for what seems like a decade, back when Macca was a regular poster. Questions and replies like the ones above just seem to scream out journalist. don't know why you bother authorising the post.

5.) 21 Mar 2018 07:59:43
Chaps. I think we should just enjoy the wonderful football we are watching from Salah. I don’t think he’ll leave in the Summer but, if we’re not challenging for the PL and CL in the future and his form continues he’ll want to leave.

Only clubs like Man United can keep their top players without challenging, prime example De Gea. One of the best keepers in the world playing for poor United teams since Ferguson left. Difference is, they are paying him a fortune.

6.) 21 Mar 2018 09:58:35
For the top class players to stay let's face it you've got to be winning things consistently and not nearly every year 😉.

7.) 21 Mar 2018 13:42:15
De Gea would go if he had chance, but I think he has wanted away for a few seasons.

8.) 21 Mar 2018 14:29:47
Glad to hear he isn’t expected to leave next season!

Hi eds, just seen a few reports Liverpool have sent representatives to talk to benfica about a possible deal for William carvalho, I find this hard to believe myself, just wondering if there's any truth to this, thanks

{Ed002's Note - William Carvalho has been looked at by Liverpool so there is the chance that something can be done.}

1.) 24 Jan 2017 12:24:08
Are they asking benfica what they think of him port red, because I thought he played for sporting😂😂😂

Hi ed, reds, can anyone settle an argument, I've 2 mates, one is saying sturridge can be added to our cl final day squad as he's played in the competition already and his loan will be over and the window open, the other is saying he can't be added to the squad, any help on this would be appreciated😁.

{Ed001's Note - the squad list can not be altered from the one given out after the January window closed.}



11 Apr 2018 20:52:36
Hi eds, just a quick question, will reaching the latter stages of the cl, and the financial rewards it brings change any of our targets for the summer, thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No.}



14 Mar 2018 21:33:23
Evening eds, and reds, a question for ed02 if your about, I've been having a discussion with a friend about emre can and his contract coming to an end, when I mentioned he can only negotiate with teams outside the pl he said I was wrong, I then looked up the Bowman ruling and it doesn't say any where about only being able to sign pre Contract with foreign clubs. Is this a rule brought in by uefa or the different governing bodies in each country, thanks,

{Ed002's Note - Until May - from January - he can talk to any side directly other than English and Welsh sides, so Juventus, Greenock Morton, PSG or whoever can strike a pre-contract deal after May he can talk to English and Welsh sides as well, so Manchester City and Newport County can reach agreement a month ahead of his contract running out.}

1.) 14 Mar 2018 22:54:25
Thanks for the reply ed02, appreciate it,

{Ed002's Note - You are welsome.}

2.) 15 Mar 2018 07:22:45
He won’t be going to Newport Ed.
He wants trophies and European football so no doubt he will be signing for TNS.

3.) 15 Mar 2018 08:47:30
Did you really said that Agger?



28 Jan 2018 15:38:42
Hi eds, reds, any official word on how long lalanna is out for? I seen some reports saying he's out for six weeks while klopp said it was a minor muscle tear, thanks.

{Ed001's Note - Liverpool say he should only be out a week or so.}

1.) 28 Jan 2018 15:44:52
Thanks ed01, let's hope that's true,



13 Jan 2018 11:24:29
Hi eds and reds, I was wondering if ed02 could explain how ffp works and how it's determined how much clubs can spend, I understand it's probably very complex but its there's a " dumbed down version" for us not so in the Know, I'd appreciate it, cheers, PS tried the search,

{Ed002's Note - In the simplest of terms clubs are constrained to only spend what they earn and they cannot simply borrow to build up debt.

From 2011/2012 all clubs need to provide a second set of accounts specifically for the purpose of Financial Fair Play. These are based on the ordinary accounts but adapted for the provisions for FFP - so certain things can be deducted as allowable costs (infrastructure changes, spending on youth sides, wages of players signed prior to 2010 etc.). These accounts also include the income streams (TV and prize money, match day revenue, commercial revenue).

The FFP accounts are then assessed for compliance with the provisions of the FFP rules to ensure that wages have not increased beyond that allowed and spending on transfers is constrained based on what the club earns (ply €5M spread over a rolling three year period). The owners can add to the transfer funds from their own money up to €30M over a rolling three year period. Clubs can opt out of meeting FFP but will then be excluded for European competition.

So the bottom line is a club can only spend what it earns and cannot increase wages beyond a small amount each year.}

1.) 13 Jan 2018 12:19:06
Has ffp been considered a success or effective ed002? When you see the sums that the likes of psg and man city can still throw at transfers.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, it has worked pretty well. I don't really understand your comment about Manchester City or PSG. Both paid a substantial fine and were subject to sanctions. Numerous clubs have been banned, fined etc..

If you look at Manchester City, (a) theu have a larger income than most, and (b) whilst working within the rules are making use of some pretty extreme sponsorship that comes via their owner's business interests. So the figures are skewed.

This is seen as an issue by UEFA and the reason there have been efforts over the past four years or so to agree a sponsorship cap. UEFA are happy for those "elite" European clubs that meet (now twice or three times a year) to come up with a proposal, but so far they have failed to agree a figure. UEFA are aware that taking the matter to the European Club Association will not help them. Eventually they will come up with a cap themselves and that will be it. A similar issue is being discussed about capping TV and media income for FFP because of the finances for English sides also being skewed. With a UEFA senior official moved on it might be easier to push something through as the resistance was related to the clubs that would be most impacted by a change.

Effectively the cap would say something like, "regardless of the amount of sponsorship a club obtains, only the first €115M will be allowable for the purposes of the FFP calculation". The same could be done with the media income - obviously that would hit the English sides very hard and a few others only. It is contraversial but there is a swell of effort from other sides to make it happen. One side who were leading the push pulled out of the group of "elite" sides earlier this year so it will take others to pick up the ball on that one. But it is fair to say that mainland European sides do not see it as fair that the English sides can benefit from vast media income and would like a more level playing field.}

In light of the above surely the neymar deal was not done according to these rules.

Were they aware of this and just went ahead with it anyway with the intention of being excluded from Europe or do they think that over 3 years they will be able to balance it out?

Or do they actually earn the amount that was needed to make the deal happen. I just don't understand that one.

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing to say that PSG cannot cover the costs of Neymar through additional income from a new shirt deal, new sponsorship deals and endorsements in addition to the income they already have and player sales.}

3.) 13 Jan 2018 13:00:27
Does the sale of players count towards what the club earns or are the rules just toward commercial incomings?

{Ed002's Note - Player sales count and that is the way MST clubs raise money toward the purchases.}

4.) 13 Jan 2018 13:08:35
What is Your personally opinion on capping of the media related income Ed002? I would argue that the PL has made itself a desirable product worthy of the money that is being thrown at it currently, so why should it and clubs within it be essentially limited just because clubs abroad think it’s unfair? Unless I’m missing something it seems like sour grapes from the bigger clubs in Spain, Germany, Italy etc who are afraid of losing their status as the richest clubs.

{Ed002's Note - It is not sour grapes from the bigger clubs but those who don't have the benefit and are priced out of transfers. The likes of Crystal Palace can buy a £75M player if they wish - most mainland clubs can't. I suspect you are not aware of who the "richest" clubs are but the English sides feature prominently. Personally, there is a need to manage finances responsibly - because when the "elite" sides breakaway they will take with them the there is every likelihood that the big money from television, sponsorship etc. would go with a breakaway league.}

5.) 13 Jan 2018 14:03:19
Thanks for the reply ed02, brilliant as usual.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

6.) 13 Jan 2018 16:46:54
Thanks for your insight Ed002!

I see the express has said we've submitted a bid for allison, I take this is not true ed? Seeing ward not in the squad a lot are putting 2+2 together and probably getting 10.

{Ed002's Note - It would be a lot for a number 3 goalkeeper behind joint number 1s Ward and Karius. Obvious joint number 3 or number 4 if Mignolet stays.}

Kloppsboss city did not smash the world record for a keeper, that is still buffon, but is proof you can get a good keeper without paying 60-80m, but seemingly our brilliant scouts can't find one,

Salah fair points and I wasn't saying he's world class, and he may have crumbled under pressure against us but he didn't roll the ball off one of our players into his own net, nor let a harmless shot through his hands, both occasions being under no pressure from opposing players, as I said the gk position is haunting us, I'm not judging karius on one game, his positioning in some games was atrocious. For Utd second goal at OT for example, I'm just gobsmacked how so many fans are so accepting of average players who are costing us final after final,

No point settling for second best? That's exactly what we've been doing for the last 5/ 6 years with theses bang average keepers, surely there are more than just Allison or oblak out there at mental money, city picked up ederson who wasn't talked about and didn't cost 80m, this is what scouts get paid for, find a good keeper who's not 80m,

It's being reported from a Brazilian media outlet called " terra ", ed,
